The legendary Betty White turns 96 today (January 17), and we thought we’d try something a little different to honor the TV icon.

White was on multiple hit television shows, but she’ll always be best known and remembered as Rose Nylund from The Golden Girls.  We’re not sure how familiar Rose was with haiku poetry, but we still think she (and White) would love our short, sweet tributes to her and her roommates. Enjoy!
